The title of this post refers to a Forbes.com article, dated Feb. 7, 2013, in which the writer discusses the perils of network printers and MFPs as potential entry points for malicious activities.

To quote the Forbes article: “According to InfoTrends, there are almost 30 million printers and multifunction devices in offices and homes throughout the U.S. and Western Europe, and most are connected to a network. This means they are just as susceptible to malware and hacker attacks as PCs – but for a variety of reasons they are often overlooked by IT professionals and used without proper safeguards by employees.”

The above reinforces the fact that business owners and enterprise IT administrators need to make data security a key consideration when integrating new MFPs with their network infrastructure.

And when you look at how best to ensure your business-critical data stays safeguarded, it’s clearly one of the many important reasons why Xerox MFPs built on ConnectKey™ technology provide an unparalleled advantage.

I encourage you to read the Forbes article to gain a better understanding of the security threats that face owners of improperly protected network printers and MPFs. Then, take some time to understand the many ways Xerox ConnectKey technology is the right choice for businesses looking to simplify the way work gets done.
